It was a perfect November morning in Sarasota for the P-family portraits. Tweens and toddlers often have a challenging reputation, especially when it comes to photo sessions. But these children were the sweetest, most loving and patient crew around. It was a nearly impossible task to cull their images down, but here is a selection of some of the family’s (and my) favorites from their holiday mini session.
This was Harper’s third visit at Fanciful Photography with Santa. She kicked off this year’s event and her curiosity and interest in the toys on the set was exactly what I had envisioned. Her sense of wonderment and awe are the epitome of the Christmas spirit. The memory book of her visits with Santa will be nothing short of magical.
Toddlers can be unpredictable on their opinions with Santa. Sometimes, it works best to have them jump in right away and other times, they may take a few minutes to warm up. Well, Isla jumped right in and was fully enamored with Santa. I had a feeling Ava would be the life of the party, and she didn’t disappoint. Checking Santa’s list for their names, followed by a little magical Rudolph nose and some dancing with Santa. It was the perfect Santa experience.
It is hard to believe that Christmas is just one week from today. I can’t think of a better way to get into the spirit of the holiday than sharing images from The third annual Fanciful Photography Santa Experience.
I have watched the youngest two grow from before they were born. I have to admit, I was slightly disappointed that we didn’t get an Epic Kate running from Santa photo this year. She was quite smitten with him (as was Gabe who couldn’t leave without one last hug).
Big brother Nathan and sister Maya were a huge help and not to be left out of the spirit of Christmas.
It was a true honor to watch Clara grow into a toddler over the past year. Planning for Clara’s one-year portrait session started months before the big day. Clara’s mom and I went over wardrobe and plans for what to wear, colors and type of cake, but mostly the idea that we would celebrate Clara’s first birthday in a relaxed but fun atmosphere. Clara was as cute and sweet as they come and made my job an easy one.
